Coming up next month, Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, an event near and dear to our hearts will be held at the Disability Help Center. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), more than 41,000 individuals die by suicide each year. Suicidal thoughts can affect anyone regardless of background, gender, or age, and they often stem from an untreated mental health condition. We use this month to reach out to those affected by suicide, raise awareness, ensure that everyone has access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention, and connect individuals with suicidal ideation to treatment services.
That’s why we want to point out several important resources in an effort to shed light on this highly taboo and stigmatized topic.
COUNSELING CONNECTIONS This organization’s mission is to promote personal growth and development with regard to your personal characteristics and capabilities. The experts who work here specialize in helping patients who suffer from depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, LGBTQ concerns, grief and loss, and many other personal issues for which counseling could help. Location and Phone Number: 8350 W. Sahara Ave., Ste. 130 / (702) 258-5711 SOUTHERN NEVADA ADULT MENTAL HEALTH This outpatient clinic provides a continuum of treatment, such as diagnostic and psychological rehabilitation services for adults with mental illness.
There’s nothing more important to us this upcoming month and every month than to help our clients get the help they need. If you have questions, want advice, or just need someone to talk to, don’t put off getting in touch with our advocates here at the Disability Help Center. We are here for you.
